“Hearing Loss Tips – for Those Who Have It and Those Who Don’t”

I have experienced hearing loss for several years but finally had to get hearing aids so that I could better hear my co-workers, my clients, and my audiences. After reading this book I actually now feel in control of my situation! Great tips for handling this loss and for getting comfortable with this loss both physically and emotionally. I especially liked the myths about hearing loss and Dynamics of Hearing.  Thank you again Linnaea for writing a book that is very informative, honest, inspirational….and humorous!! – Roberta Perry

The work I have compiled in this book was inspired by a lovely hygienist who had been cleaning my teeth for over 10 years and has since retired. She pulled down her face mask so I could read her lips and asked in her strong Swedish accent, “Linnaea, my husband and I have noticed that we are losing some of our hearing as we grow older. Any tips for us?”

I was taken by surprise – first by her question – then by the realization that I literally had a lifetime of experience on this topic – and that my experience could be beneficial to those unfamiliar with the challenges of having, or interacting with, a person with a hearing loss.

 This is by far the best information for a generation of Boomers who have no clue about hearing loss. My guy suffers from extreme hearing loss due to Chicken Pox as an adult. This book is helping him and also myself in understanding, accepting and living with hearing loss. The resources available in this book are outstanding. – Jean White

Shouting Won’t Help

I shared with her some of what I discuss in this book:

  • The three biggest myths associated with hearing loss
  • Three things she can ask of individuals to help her be part of the conversation
  • The dynamics of hearing that everyone uses and can be capitalized on when it comes to hearing loss
  • Some of the dangers of having a hearing loss
  • Some of the benefits of having a hearing loss

I could tell by her response that what I shared was tremendously helpful. She could relate what I was sharing with what she and her husband had already been experiencing. She was deeply appreciative of my honesty and the survival tips I provided. I felt immensely satisfied because I knew if she fully embraced and would practice what I gave her, she and her husband could go on living full, active and satisfying lives despite their diminishing hearing.

That’s when I realized it was time for me to share my insights, experiences and tips with a broader audience. I do so not from an academic “schooled” point of view, although I certainly do draw upon some of those resources in this book, but as a person who has struggled with this physical disability since early childhood. My sharing is honest – personal – from the gut; no-holds-barred. It has to be that way to be truly helpful.

Why?

Because the biggest challenge in my life was not the inability to hear well. It was the unwillingness to recognize the severity of the loss and, therefore, not seek the type of information that is in this book.

Linnaea suffered too long without benefiting from the knowledge she has presented for us an easy to understand book that would fit in most purses, briefcases or backpacks. We all interact on a regular basis with someone struggling to understand what we are saying because of a hearing loss. I have only experienced a tiny glimpse of her frustration when trying to decipher voice mails. I love the CPR idea since every citizen would benefit from taking CPR to save a life, we would also benefit from learning and memorizing CPR for hearing loss to facilitate an improved quality of life.- Jane Branum

 

 

Here are some of the topics covered in the book

Why should you care about  hearing loss?

My story

How we hear

Types of hearing loss

Degrees of hearing loss and how they impact our ability to communicate

Characteristics of hearing loss

Treatment for hearing loss

How hearing is damaged

Linnaea has participated in several of my RockStar Marketing Boot Camps.  When she stands to share, people really listen.  Not because what she contributes is witty and wise (although both are true) but because she is such an inspiration.  Here is a person who could be hiding in the shadows of her disability. Not Linnaea! She sparkles with confidence and determination. At our events, Linnaea is a true RockStar.  Her lips, and her book, are a must read! – Craig Duswalt

How loud is too loud?

When is our hearing at risk?

Hearing loss in children

Getting your ears tested

Audiologist or hearing instrument specialist? (like at Sears or Costco)

The hearing examination

When you read this book, don’t skip the CPR section. This section is for anyone who knows a person with a hearing loss and wants them to still feel connected to the conversations. The tips from the author’s personal experience will help anyone who wants to communicate better with a hearing impaired person.  I recommend this to anyone who needs more facts than just hearing aid brochures offer and wants to enjoy the information too. I could sense the author’s warmth in the stories and hard facts. -C. Denyer

This book is a wonderful guide for those who have serious hearing loss. I especially like Chapter 10. I can relate to turning off the hearing aids. I cover my left ear and can shut out people talking when I am trying to focus on something I am reading. – D. Evans

Dangers of hearing loss

Awkward and disastrous moments

 Hearing loss myths

Dynamics of hearing that make communication possible

CPR for conversing with hearing impaired individuals

 Ms Mallette’s book resonates on three levels:

1. It is the story of a survivor, an overcomer, a thriver. (“That which does not kill you makes you stronger.”)
2. It is a user-friendly guide to those with hearing loss and those who interact with those with hearing loss.
3. It is an example of a person teaching with authority, rather than just having done a lot of research but never tested or lived it. (Matthew 7:29)

Buy the book. Read it. Let its relevance sink in. – S. Nulla
